Dual Dimensions for hole callouts

Creator
Creator

I am trying to add dual dimensions to the hole callouts.  I am working in the draft template under styles.  In the example shown in the attached file, I would like to show %HS as a dual dimension, so I click the value, then Format, but when the format values opens it is grayed out and i can't make the necessary changes.  I have tried to manually make the changes using %{%HS/du} but that only gave me the dimension with "/du" as a suffix.  So can anyone tell me where I am going wrong.  Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

What version of NX are you using?

There is no dual dimension setting for the hole callout either in Drafting or PMI application.

You can use the appended text as per your need to display the information.

That doesn't appear to work for annotation of holes which makes some sense as a 1"-8 UNC tapped hole is not the same as a M25 even if they are roughly equiv.

For tapped holes, sure, but not all holes are tapped.

Anyway, this has already been posted in the SE forum previously so this thread is redundant.

Yea I just saw the second thread here for this.

From what I have seen SE treats threads and other Hole features like they are special and not just geometry, c'bore holes etc also behave the same.

Yeah, but shouldn't they (not tapped ones) be able to be dual dimensioned and toleranced too?
